10 things to do lose weight fast in NYC

Weight loss NYC step 1

Before trying to lose weight in NYC, the first thing to do would be to understand what you are starting in terms of your body mass index and your weight distribution. So, how do you measure a persons body mass index, popularly known as BMI.

What is BMI?

Body mass index (BMI) is a measure of body fat based on height and weight that applies to adult men and women.

BMI Categories:

  • Underweight = <18.5
  • Normal weight = 18.5–24.9
  • Overweight = 25–29.9
  • Obesity = BMI of 30 or greater

Let us say, you know you are a bit overweight or obese in New York City, then what do you do? Where do you start to lose weight in the big apple? Does the distribution of weight matter?

Weight loss NYC step 2

So, once you know you are overweight or obese, and need to lose some weight. How do you know your health risk related to weight? Are all people with the same BMI at the same health risk? What if I have a lot of muscle mass?

The second thing to do after BMI to determine your health risk is to actually look at your distribution of weight using a simple measure called weight circumference.

Why is it important to know your waist circumference?

Since waist circumference indicates the health risks that come with overweight and obesity, it is important to know waist circumference.

What are the risks of being obese in the middle part of the body?

If most of your body fat is around your waist rather than at your hips, you’re at a higher risk for heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

What is the the waist circumference above which the health risk goes up?

This risk goes up with a waist size that is greater than 35 inches for women or greater than 40 inches for men.

What is the best way to measure your waist circumference?

To correctly measure your waist, stand and place a tape measure around your middle, just above your hipbones. Measure your waist just after you breathe out.

Weight loss NYC step 4

Well, the oversimplified Government approach is and has always been that it is as simple as calories in and calories out. What really translates to is that if you are gaining weight, it is really your fault and that you need to smarten up, eat less and exercise more. The question, however, is that most people actually know this oversimplified approach of “calories in, and calories out” while the problem of obesity continues to be a bigger and bigger problem around the world.

So, how do you understand the true causes of weight gain in NYC?

Is there something more to the weight gain than the “blame the victim for obesity” attitude?

  • Could there be something that explains your weight gain, distribution of the weight in the upper part of the body such as the belly, that also explains the eating habits?
  • What if there is a metabolic reason that explains the weight gain, eating habits, and the distribution of the weight in the upper part of the body?
  • What if that problem is called insulin resistance?

Free weight loss tips for fast weight loss in NYC

  • Understand losing weight takes time, do not rush it
  • The best pace of losing weight is losing about 2-4 pounds a week under careful medical supervision or 1-2 lbs if you are trying to do it on your own.
  • Portions matter so pay attention to the portion sizes before you eat
  • Look on the glycemic index of foods as higher the glycemic index, higher the insulin response, and higher the insulin response, higher the chances of sugar rush, and crash leading to overeating due to insulin fluctuations!

Does eating from plate better than eating from a box?

Yes. It helps reduce the chances of overeating, and it applies to drinking from a glass to instead of drinking from the bottle

How about eating in front of a screen?

Diet pills review

Diet pills review

Studies have shown that sitting and eating in front a TV leads to overeating so do not eat in front of a TV

How about the soft drinks or fruit juices? Should you stay away from these?

Yes, it is a good idea to stay away from sugary drinks as these are empty calories, without any nutritional value. For example, one 20-ounce sugary drink has about 250 empty calories.

How much water should I drink?

Drink at least 8 glasses of water per day.

How about eating out?

Studies have shown that we consume about 40 percent more food while eating out compared to eating at home, so it is important to prepare more meals at home.

What are net carbs?

Check the labels with a special focus on net carbs. Net carbs is total carbohydrates in grams minus fiber carbs. If you are tying to lose weight under medical supervision, you may want to consider the ketogenic carbohydrate restriction of about 20-30 grams of net carbs per day depending on your body size, health conditions and what the weight loss doctor recommended.
